Ozzy Osbourne has rescheduled his European tour. The trek will now take place in January and February of 2004. The dates were originally planned for this fall, but had to be scrapped when it was revealed that Osbourne was undergoing treatment for a worsening tremor. A specialist at Tufts University in Boston has put Osbourne on medication which causes dry mouth, thus affecting his ability to sing.
Osbourne told MTV.com last Friday (October 17), that the treatment has brought the tremor under control. He also categorically denied that he was afflicted with Parkinson’s Disease.
Meanwhile, Osbourne’s wife and manager, Sharon Osbourne, will host the annual M.A.P. Awards on November 5 at the Beverly Hills Hotel in Los Angeles. The event is a benefit for the Musicians Assistance Program, which helps musicians get help for drug and alcohol addiction regardless of their financial situation. This year’s event will honor Aerosmith frontmanSteven Tyler, blues guitarist Jimmie Vaughan, and music industry attorney John Branca.
